    "Why is CNET hyping grayware/malware-loaded apps?"

    May 24, 2013  |   By ks2problema

    Version: aTube Catcher 3.8.1403

    Pros

    I didn't DL it.

    Cons

    I'm going to stop using CNET's DOWNLOAD.com because not only does the software they hype trojanized with nuisance-ware and browser-takeover-ware but now their "Secure Downloader" actively installs even more crapware on your computer.

    This is the end of me and Download.com

    The bitter end.

    Summary

    I'm gone. This place has become a disgrace and a malware pit.

    "it works but..."

    April 29, 2013  |   By dirtyjake9000

    Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1347

    Pros

    actually does what you want quite easily

    Cons

    doesn't let you record at 48khz wav
    installs loads of extra nonsense, chrome extensions, some weird game software and that's just the stuff I've found. This is when I did the custom install and deselected all the extra optional stuff i could.
    This is the kind of software that means you'll need to reinstall your OS in 6 months if you keep installing software from here.

    Summary

    I feel like I've let a PC rapist into my house.

    "Extremely handy and versatile"

    April 24, 2013  |   By cusanus

    Version: aTube Catcher 2.2.563

    Pros

    Just got it, downloaded on flv file from youtube, did the drag from the file to the program, cut a DVD just like that, worked just fine. If everything else in the package works that well, there's hardly anything it can't do, a MUST have.

    Cons

    The guy above says it installs the Ask toolbar and homepage, etc, even if you choose not to. I didn't have that problem, but at first the install kept graying out the 2nd option to uncheck it, that was toolbar install I think. So, I was about to dump the install, but then it suddenly let me uncheck both boxes and didn't install the Ask stuff, so I'm quite happy, but watch the install.

    Summary

    I use IDM for youtube download, but to convert and cut a VCD or DVD is a real pain. This program is the way to go, easy peasy and does just about everything. For fancy DVD options, you have to use something else.

    "GREAT SOFTWARE BUT BE CAREFUL!!!"

    March 9, 2013  |   By johnsmith3106

    Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1347

    Pros

    Works better than any other download software I have every used. I have tried about 6 different ones from Cnet.ocm.

    Cons

    Be careful, I scanned my computer with Malwarebytes right after I installed this software and it found something called rogue.link software that came with aTube Catcher. I let Malwarebytes uninstall the rogue.link software and everything work well from that point on.

    Summary

    Very good software but watch out for the harmful software that may come with it if you're not careful. Make sure to do a Malwarebytes full scan immediately after you install it.

    "It's awesome!"

    March 6, 2013  |   By KipGoeing

    Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1347

    Pros

    It's so easy to grab a video or audio.
    And it's so fast.
    You can download it to pretty much any file format you want.
    Even HD videos.
    It's free!

    Cons

    Pay attention to what you're installing during the installation process.
    There are a lot of extra features that I never use. (not really a con)

    "Works well but nothing in life is free"

    February 19, 2013  |   By FallingToasters

    Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1347

    Pros

    The program does work as long as you keep it up to date.

    Cons

    I think this program contains spyware. After a while of having this on my computer, whenever I was typing in a text box, something would quickly pop up on my computer then disappear, which was a pain because it interrupted what I was typing. When I uninstalled this program and restarted my computer, the problem went away.

    That actually happened twice. The first time it happened, Avast located the source of the problem was one of the programs related to this one (YouTube Downloader, I think) but I had both aTube and Downloader on this computer. The second time around, I only had aTube Catcher.

    Summary

    I personally wouldn't recommend it because of the spyware.
